Azalea Rose is no different from all the other gestates. Even though she’s been gifted a name by Mr. Northup, she’s still only a slave. She exists for one reason—to serve. How could she be worthy of anything more? After all, she isn’t even a person. People are born from women; she’s merely a human gestated by a machine, genetically altered not to be able to love or even think for herself. Though she looks like a vintage born, the purest form of a person, she’s lower than an animal.
The truth of her life doesn’t bother her. Why should it; it’s what she was created for. Besides, there’s no escape—the gestation firms made sure of that. Every action is seen, every word is heard, and every heartbeat tracked. If she serves those she is assigned to serve, she will not be punished.
She isn’t assigned to Mr. Northup. He lives next door in an outdated house built of wood, where he is allowed to grow wasteful roses. Nothing about him makes sense. He’s old, already many years into the age of uselessness, and yet he hasn’t been dissolved. Everyone knows the useless are dissolved and the gestates serve. Everyone in her world, at least. But Kolbe isn’t from her world. Kolbe isn’t like anyone she’s ever met …
Altered is the first book in a new dystopian series by best-selling author Jacqueline Brown. It’s available in e-book and paperback through Amazon. It is also available in bookstores and libraries – just ask them to get it for you!


From the outside, seventeen-year-old Siena has the perfect life. She and her two younger sisters are adored by their wealthy father and grandmother. They are removed from the world, living in a modern-day castle in the middle of their grand family estate on the majestic shores of Maine. There is nothing to fear—Siena’s father has made sure of that. Unfortunately, he has forgotten that the greatest threats can come from within.

On the edge of their idyllic property is a dilapidated inn built long ago. Thomas, the boy Siena grew up with, is drawn to the weathered building next to the sea. He is the opposite of Luca, the troubled young man who just moved to the expansive property. While Thomas tries to draw Siena closer to the inn, Luca warns her to stay away.

The inn holds far more mysteries than Siena’s family is willing to tell … but ignorance provides no protection.

Awakening is the first in a new series by best-selling author Jacqueline Brown. She again invites readers into a world of intriguing characters and vivid scenes which prompt readers to suspend belief in the limits of physical reality and subtly question—Is there something more?

Siena has spent most of her life unaware of the world beyond what we can all see and touch. That changes when she’s forced to accept the world as it really is …
The world Luca knows to be true is no longer something Siena can deny, after her own so-called gifts reveal the unseen darkness that has been oppressing her family for generations. Her gifts confuse her, but she doesn’t fear them. Her new abilities terrify Luca—he understands them too well.
Will Siena’s gifts destroy her, as Luca fears? Is he strong enough to stay by her side, or are the memories of the past too much, even for him? In the second book of the Awakening Series, past darkness is discovered, present chains are released, future beauty glimpsed.

A blinding flash … then darkness. Bria Ford and her three closest friends are stranded on a country highway in the middle of a November night.

No phones. No car. No lights.

Helpless and hundreds of miles from home, Bria and her friends put their lives in the hands of the handsome Jonah Page and his flinty sister, East, strangers who somehow know Bria better than she knows herself. As the group bonds to adapt to a new, yet old, way of life, the secrets of Bria’s past offer them the hope they need to survive the extremes of Mother Nature, and the even more frightening extremes of human nature.

Quietly suspenseful, The Light explores how the stories we tell ourselves shape the person we present to the world, and what happens to that person when the world falls away.

Launched in June of 2020, my first-ever children’s book and an accompanying coloring book! Extraordinary is a charming picture book about God’s extraordinary love for each of us. It also touches upon the first three sacraments in the Catholic faith. When my 9-year-old saw the sketches for the story, he asked if he could help color in the pictures. Great idea! The coloring book tells the same beautiful story, with the same fun illustrations, and your child gets to be the illustrator! If you would like a free e-book version click here. Both books can be purchased on my website, on Amazon, or at your favorite bookstore! If you would like to learn more about my fabulous illustrator Katie Ennis, please click here.
